The workshop tries to bring together researchers actively working on methodologies, design tools, and architectures, for multi-core embedded computing platforms.
The workshop will have three main sessions:
l Heterogeneous Many-Core Architectures: on the most relevant problems arising during the design exploration and optimization of heterogeneous many/multi core architectures.
l Design Tools and Methodologies: on the state-of-the-art of tool development and on fresh ideas to make design tools aware of non-functional requirements and different target architectures.
l Run-time Adaptivity Techniques: on the state-of-the-art techniques to dynamically manage and adapt the resources of the target architecture to runtime workloads and/or new applications.
We invite submissions of posters covering the topics of the three workshop sessions. Poster submissions should either be a 150-200 word abstract or in the form of the poster itself (in an A4 or US Letter size format) and should clearly identify the relevant session (Run-time Adaptivity Techniques, Heterogeneous Many-Core Architectures, or Design Tools and Methodologies).
Posters will be published online at the Workshop web site.

Embedded computing is one of the computing areas where multi/many-core architectures are being used to achieve high-performance and/or energy savings. Tight and demanding requirements, short time-to-market and possible product upgrades, make the development of applications and the design of embedded architectures very challenging. Techniques for hardware/software co-design, for configuring the system according to application needs, for programming the multiple cores, and for generating customized hardware accelerators are currently hot topics of research. Furthermore, customization via reconfigurable hardware, run-time resource management, and run-time adaptability are seen as promising techniques to adapt the embedded computing architecture to the application requirements.
This workshop will serve as a privileged forum to discuss recent research and development advances from academia and industry.
This workshop is mainly organized around three EU funded FP7 projects, namely 2PARMA (PARallel PAradigms and Run-time MAnagement techniques for Many-core Architectures, http://www.2parma.eu/), ERA (Embedded Reconfigurable Architecture, http://www.era-project.eu/), and REFLECT (Rendering FPGAs to Multi-Core Embedded Computing, http://www.reflect-project.eu/).
In addition, the workshop includes presentations from the FP7 projects: parMERASA (Multi-Core Execution of Parallelised Hard Real-Time Applications Supporting Analysability, http://www.parmerasa.eu/), MADNESS (Methods for predictAble Design of heterogeNeous Embedded Systems with adaptivity and reliability Support, http://www.madnessproject.org/), ALMA (Architecture oriented paraLlelization for high performance embedded Multicore systems using scilAb), and Flextiles (Self adaptive heterogeneous manycore based on Flexible Tiles).
This workshop will present the approaches and research efforts being explored, the results achieved, and the proposed research avenues of these projects.
Furthermore, we will have two invited talks given by prestigious speakers. Finally, a panel will allow a fruitful discussion between members from academia and from industry
